Improve automated meat processing plant efficiency.
Meat Processing Pickle Mix solutions and spice slurries are automatically processed based on a level signal in the appropriate feed tank. Dry ingredients are pre-staged with the minor ingredients supplied from surge hoppers with feeders. The higher volume ingredients are conveyed to the Vacucam Ejector Mixer directly from bulk bag unload/surge hoppers or bag dump surge hoppers with load cells.
The Vacucam® Ejector is mounted on a batch mix tank. The controls will automate the addition of batch water and liquid additions and then sequentially convey and mix the precise batch quantities of minor ingredients, salt and sugar for a rapid and total meat processing mix. After all of the batch liquid additions and dry ingredients are mixed in the batch tank, the controls will automatically switch the proper transfer valve to the proper pickle feed tank and pump the mix to that tank. The system is now available for the next automated meat processing batch selection. The PLC controls will allow ready access to management to monitor plant operations. Printed reports can document and validate daily production.
